Guilty pleasure alert! I watched John Wick last week and you know what? I actually liked it. Sure, it was total nonsense but it was brutal, incoherent and… fun. So this isn’t the worse news we’ve heard today. chatted to the directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch who confirmed that sequle is already in the works: “We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original,” Stahelski said.

“It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma you’re not going to watch it. Look at any great action star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson or Robert Downey Jr., pick a name, you love the guy first. Good action, bad action, you just love them in action. So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves and then we’ll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome.”

The duo didn’t mention Wick himself, Keanu, but we’d have to assume he’d be involved. As for how they’d up the action? Well, heaven knows…

John Wick is, indeed, back.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
